(Abu Dhabi, UAE, August 27, 2017) – Iftah Ya Simsim brings laughter and fun to children everywhere. Bidaya Media, the producers of Iftah Ya Simsim and Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, organized a fun day of events for children at the hospital and clinic. The Iftah Ya Simsim family, including Shams, No’man, Ka’aki and Gargur, drew lots of laughter and smiles from the children as they sang, danced, listened to stories and made puppets together.
The children welcomed their favorite Iftah Ya Simsim Muppets – No’man and Shams – as they sang, danced, and learned about letters, numbers, and the world around them. The children also were able to watch some of their favorite episodes from Iftah Ya Simsim – the number one Arabic educational program for young children. The children were delighted to meet and hug some of their favorite Iftah Ya Simsim characters in person.
Bidaya Media volunteers and the Muppets Gargur and Ka’aki, also visited children from two cancer clinic’s within the hospital. The children especially enjoyed the one on one personal greetings and hugs they received from Gargur and Kaaki. Khalifa Medical City and Bidaya staff were on hand to play games, entertain, and carry out activities with the children. The children enjoyed the change of routine and being able to learn and laugh from their beds. Children everywhere have the right to learn. Iftah Ya Simsim encourages children to learn Arabic and gain knowledge and skills to prepare them for school and the world they live in.
